Sanjay Dutt is set to revive his production House – Sanjay S Dutt Productions – with the upcoming film Prassthanam. The trailer of the movie was recently launched with much fanfare. It received positive response from the audience, and now everyone is looking forward to the release of the film.

For the uninitiated, Prassthanam is an official remake of the 2010 Telugu film by the same name. The original was a huge hit and hence people have high expectations from its remake as well. However, as the release date of the remake is inching closer, Sanjay Dutt has doused doubts that Prassthanam is not an exact copy of the original.

“Our director has done a fantastic job with this film. Being from the South, he has rightly understood the North. This movie is not an exact copy of the original. The premise and the story remain the same,” said Dutt.

Upon being asked why did he feel the need to tweak the story for the North, the superstar said, “North has a certain culture, it is like just another symphony, another stage or concert. So that is how we approached it.”
